Can anyone point me to actual data on how often motorists receive traffic tickets? I'm looking for where the top of the bell curve is, so to speak - obviously, individuals vary widely, which is kind of the point of my question - how often does the "median" driver receive traffic tickets?

Google is failing me - I can find data like how many citations are issued, and found one stat that said "1 in 6 motorists receive a citation annually," but that doesn't really tell me what I want to know, as all motorists do not have an equal chance of receiving one (and some get more than one).
Anecdotes welcome, but probably won't really help unless they involve a database. Of survey data or insurance data about average number of citations. :-)
